My hubby had the brisket burger and homemade fries! I had the chicken strip salad, the breeding on the chicken was fabulous. A huge thumbs up

We stopped by after visiting Magnolia Silos, and the food was great. Special of the day was Brisket Grilled Cheese, I was a little iffy about it but ordered it anyway and it was awesome!! Great atmosphere and will be going again when in the area.

We're so happy to hear you were impressed and will return again! The Brisket Grilled Cheese is a big time favorite here at Cricket's. Next time, you should try our Peanut Butter & Bacon Burger-- Sounds crazy (we know!), but it's another all-time favorite. We dare you! ;) More

Very friendly and efficient service and delicious food. I ordered the brisket grilled cheese and Brussels sprouts. Sides are extra $ but it was good.

My family loved this place. My husband could pick from all the beers he could ever want, my daughter and I could play fooseball,pinball and air hockey while he tried all his craft beers and the food especially the burgers and fish,chicken tacos were to die for. Server Andrew was amazing and stayed well beyond his closing time to chat... More

Great location - under the Spice Market. Lots of free parking outside. Food options are many, and good value. Friendly service. Highly recommended.

We had lunch here and were very pleased. The setting is in part of a historic warehouse which is part of the Spice market place. The food was good and reasonable. My wife ate a peanut butter and bacon burger and she raved about how good it was. I had the fish and chips.

Cricket's is a good place to grab a meal and watch a game. But...........and the reason I only gave them average instead of very good........not all seats have a good view of a TV!!!

We stopped in after a trip to the Spice Village. It was an hour before closing, but we thought we'd have enough time. We were seated very promptly because they were not busy at all; however, it took almost 10 minutes before a server came to our table. And that was after my husband did a stare down. The waitress...
